HC Deb 27 January 1967 vol 739 c378W
Mr. Costain

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list in tabular form the main direct and indirect taxes levied in the United Kingdom and in the Common Market countries, giving the estimated yield of each and expressing each as a proportion of the national income of the respective country.

Mr. Diamond

I would refer the hon. Member to my Reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Lewes (Sir T. Beamish) on 19th January. The figures then given were taken from information supplied by O.E.C.D. which does not give details for the individual taxes within the general categories of "direct" and "indirect".—[Vol. 739, c.122.]
